Trump warns Russia to ‘get ready’ for US missile strikes on SyriaIn an escalating series of events, US President Donald Trump has warned Russia that the US would send missiles to Syria after a Russian ambassador threatened that any such missiles would be shot down. “You shouldn’t be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it,” Trump declared.
US President Donald Trump issued a grave warning to Russia and announced that US missiles "will be coming" to Syria. The statement came shortly after Russia’s ambassador to Lebanon warned that any US missiles fired at Syria would be shot down and their launch sites targeted.
Trump made the warnings in a post on his Twitter account on Wednesday. “Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria,” he wrote. “Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and 'smart!'”

Trump’s tweet was quickly followed by another post proclaiming that Washington's relationship with Russia was “worse now than it has ever been.” The president urged Moscow to stop the arms race it was conducting, as Russia needed the US' help.
Our relationship with Russia is worse now than it has ever been, and that includes the Cold War. There is no reason for this. Russia needs us to help with their economy, something that would be very easy to do, and we need all nations to work together. Stop the arms race?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 11, 2018
As reported by JOL earlier today, Moscow has reiterated it would immediately respond to any strike on its military during a potential US attack. Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, Russian defense official Yevgeny Serebrennikov said he believes the lives of Russian servicemen would not be in danger in a future attack by Washington.” I think that the United States understands this and will not allow it," Serebrennikov said, as translated by Russia’s Sputnik news. "Because otherwise, Russia's response will be immediate.”
